We could not be more pleased with the care our son receives at Learning Edge. When we drop him off it truly feels like we are leaving him with friends and family. The teachers in the infant classroom are AMAZING and I feel so thankful to have found a place where I feel very comfortable leaving him, knowing they will be cuddling, playing and taking the best care of him while I am away. They are so professional, kind and incredible child care teachers. They go above and beyond every day to ensure my son has the best time, feeling safe, secure and it is obvious they have the children's best interests at heart. The updates I receive through the KidReport app are incredible and let me know exactly what he is doing in real time! The pictures they send help me stay connected with him and show me the activities they do with him from tummy time to outdoor walks! He has a great time there and we are so thankful to have found such a caring, nurturing, welcoming, and professional place for our son.

Our family is grateful for the 3 years we have spent with The Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool. We've always been treated with care and respect, with warmth and consideration. Our two children have given immense opportunities to establish friendships, to learn both freely and alongside a top-notch curriculum, and have we have always deemed The Learning Edge as a loving and safe environment. Forever grateful.

We recently relocated to the area from out of state where our kids where attending a private school that we loved. We were so happy to find Learning Edge! We were very impressed after meeting with one of the directors and knew that this was the school for us. We adore the staff and it is clear that they adore the children. Both of our boys (2 and 4) attend the school and have been thriving after such a tremulous year of being out of school. Great app keeps parents updated throughout the day and the staff are all so friendly and caring.

Our experience at Learning Edge has been fantastic. The teachers, staff, and directors genuinely care about each and every child's wellbeing, education, and security. Our child will be one of the young ones in his kindergarten class due to a summer birthday, but because of the great education and socialization he got at Learning Edge, we are confident he is ready for kindergarten and will succeed. I can't say enough great things about Learning Edge.
